The Vegetarian Myth - Lierre Keith
Lierre Keith spent almost twenty years as a dedicated vegan. Her book is a moving account of how that diet destroyed her body and how she came to realise that vegetarianism was not the answer to the problems of environmental destruction, animal suffering or Third World starvation.
She did not come to this knowledge easily. Despite her catastrophically failing health, she was certain it could not be due to her diet. Didn’t everyone know that animal foods with their saturated fat and cholesterol, not to mention their growth hormones and antibiotics, were the cause of all our modern health woes?
Keith pulls no punches, but she does address vegetarians with empathy and love. She has been there.
